The Body Snatcher

Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s hair-raising horror story, spooky dystopian thriller The Body Snatcher steals its way onto The Dukes’ stage later today.

Merging mystery, morality and music, including live performances of songs by David Bowie and The Clash, and shot through with humour, this new adaptation from theatre company Thunder Road brings Stevenson’s Burke-and-Hare-inspired tale into the 21st century.
